|B-Lacrosse: A glimpse of the playoffs by Scott Farrell||Comment (0)|
The Scots (20-2, 5-0) await results from this weekend's matches to see who they will face in the South Super Regionals in Houston on May 2. HP clinched a bye through the first round of what is now a 12-team state playoff system used by the THSLL.
One of the opponents in HP's quadrant of the state bracket is already known. Houston Episcopal (18-9) placed second in the South District (Houston area), and will play the fourth-place team from the Central (Austin and San Antonio) District in the first round on May 1. The South Super Regional is hosted by Houston Christian High School.
The four teams receiving first-round byes are South District champion The Woodlands (13-3), Central District champion Austin High (11-2), and North District champion HP and runner-up St. Mark's (11-3). The Scots beat The Woodlands and Austin in the Jesuit Tournament at the start of the season, and split two games with St. Mark's.
The four quarterfinal winners will be at Highlander Stadium on May 8-9 for the state championships.
